The last quilt of my ombre trio (inspiration here) is done (Pinkscape is here, Greenscape is here).
Pinkscape and Greenscape were each free motion quilted, so Bluescape got a little straight-line love.
I love the way the grid lines look on the back.
I also love this quilt helper.
I did a French binding with hand-stitching on the back instead of machine binding. I had been machine binding a lot, so it was really good to practice my hand work. This binding is much sturdier than my first quilts.
This quilt was made differently for a very exciting reason. It’s a sample for a Quilting Basics class I’ll be teaching at Rock Paper Scissors on Mondays in April and May. We’ll work on rotary cutting, piecing, straight-line quilting and binding. I took lots of notes while making this one so that I’d remember to share all of my tips. The very second that sign up is available I’ll let you know.
I love your model. I can see he takes his work seriously.
The quilt came out great and your helper is just the right height! Well done.
He’s cheap too! Just a bit moody.
Can’t wait to hear when class starts!! So excited!
